Indian Journal of Ophthalmology, 05/11/2012
Gupta N et al. – The authors report a 63–year–old male who had undergone left eye optical penetrating keratoplasty for central leucomatous corneal opacity 10 years earlier. The eye had clear donor graft with residual astigmatism of -6.50 diopter cylinder (DC) at 30°. The patient underwent clear corneal phacoemulsification with implantation of +6.0 D spherical equivalent AcrySof SN60T9 intraocular lens (IOL). Postoperatively, at 10 months, the patient had distance corrected visual acuity of 20/30 with -2.00 DC at 20°. AcrySof toric IOL offers an effective treatment option for post–keratoplasty high corneal astigmatism in patients with cataract.
